Lote Tuqiri 2022 Tigers 2022 Cyril Connell coachThe Suzuki Brisbane Tigers are delighted to confirm the appointment of Lote Tuqiri in the 2022 U16’s Cyril Connell Head Coach role.

Tuqiri, a dual code Australian representative, Queensland Maroon and two-time NRL premiership winner has enjoyed giving back to the game which gave him so much.

“I came into the coaching arena just wanting to help out in my son Samson’s Easts Juniors under 13s team back in 2018,” said Tuqiri.

“I have continued coaching that side for the past few seasons, and it made me really enjoy the coaching aspect as to playing.

“I’m lucky enough to land this gig with the Brisbane Tigers. There’s an infinity brand with the Tigers given my last three years with Easts Juniors.

“It’s an honour for me to be given the opportunity to go a bit higher and coach in a competition where it allows athletes to go further,” he added.

Brisbane Tigers CEO, Brian Torpy, said he couldn’t be happier to have Tuqiri join the coaching staff.

“We are fortunate to have a coach with Lote’s experience and stature in our game to develop, lead and mentor the club’s next generation of Tigers players.

“I have no doubt our 2022 Cyril Connell squad will become better players as a result of playing under Lote,” he added.
